How hot you mix it changes the amount of time you have to work with it. So if alot of hardner is used (MEKP) then its hot. If its hot it dries fast (45 min) in the AZ sun. UV is a catalyst for the MEKP and speeds up the process. Too hot and you don't have enough time to paint it on. Too cold and it cures unevenly and causes cracking and weak spots.

Here is 10 minutes after originally mixing it up...


Its starting to melt the container...
